Most "time based processing" I ever did; on a nice indie rock acoustic/drum driven song. Small verb room Small Plate verb Big/long Hall verb Short slap back delay (wide) Big stereo delay lotsa repeats. Right only repeats once for every two repeats on the left. So if the left side is at 200msc then t...

Modern Recording Techniques says "...Sound Designer II or .snd format....Was developed by Digidesign for their Pro-Tools and other digital editor systems."

I think you should also consider apples tech support cost. I read somewheres that its like $200 a case!! Also when Logic 7 did have major issues when it first came out. I don't know what the story is today. Just because apple owns the 'rights' to the software dosent mean they make it better. Editing...

The inforce mac/pc compatability thing only has to do with file name size. Mac limits the number of characters that can be used in a file name its something around 30. So if you want your pc files to "always" work on mac then do that. .aiff its the newer mac standard file extention for audio files. ...

I was in on a recording of one lone shuttle pipe player. We used an over mic, in front of the girl (player) a few inches above her head about a foot infront of her. We also used a close mic just above the bottom of the pipe that is fingered to play the different notes. I think it was an LDC in cardi...

I love lots of records with tons of studio trickery, but sometimes it feels like the engineer, producer or whoever is taking the paintbrush out of the real artist's hand. Maybe that's why there are so many homerecorders. I kind of think thats its the producer or engineer who by the very act of remo...

Wow, such a wide river you have just jumped into. Apple pretty much has the market of professional everything cornered. Video editing, sound for film, photographers, recording studios.

This sounds like it could be a million things. I would guess that its a driver issue first. I would look at that. Make sure you have the newest drivers possible for audition and for the Dakota. Make sure those can talk to each other. Some PC boards don't some PIC cards. That might be an issue. Is yo...

Oh man. You will be so happy when you switch to ballanced pachbays. The studio i was at before made that switch when we "went office space" on the ADAT's (not literally). When the last of the unballanced gear when out the door (adats, behringer pachbays) all was better. Signals were better. The big ...

Thank you dave for pointing out that there is some science to recording (frequency responses) and not just an art like using your ears.
